DOS Releases Instructions for the FY2016 Diversity Immigrant Visa Program

The Diversity Immigrant Visa Program is a “green card lottery” for a class of diversity immigrants with historically low rates of immigration to the U.S.  For the fiscal year 2016, 50,000 diversity visas (DV) will be available.  There is no cost to register for the DV program.

Natives of certain countries are not eligible to apply.  Applicants who are selected in the lottery will need to meet strict eligibility requirements to qualify for a diversity visa.

Entries for the DV-2016 program must be submitted electronically at www.dvlottery.state.gov between noon, Eastern Daylight Time (EDT), Wednesday, October 1, 2014, and noon, Eastern Standard Time (EST), Monday, November 3, 2014.
